In general, “noise” is any undesirable sound. Whether the noise and vibration are tied to automotive passenger comfort concerns or to interference with critical sensors and modules in autonomous vehicles, NVH (noise, vibration and harshness) isolation and reduction is a chief concern for engineers.
Noise often occurs when two materials rub and slide against each other. By using the proper lubricant, friction and stick-slip can be reduced or prevented.
MOLYKOTE® offers specialty lubricant technologies like noise-damping greases with low-temperature performance and very low oil bleeding for friction control and dry-film anti-friction coatings for stick-slip prevention.
